Tulasi Jordan, LCSW, SEP has been trained in a variety of modalities that allow her to utilize unique and individualized approaches to healing. She has the foundation of more traditional psychotherapy training, and through additional training and experience is able to offer clients more contemporary interventions as well.

I am an integrative practitioner in psychotherapy and the Comprehensive Resource Model, with experience particularly in the fields of drug and alcohol misuse and domestic violence. I have a private practice called True Connections whereby I treat clients from all walks of life and who present with conditions from workplace stress to severe trauma. I am also experienced in the treatment of anxiety, depression, bipolar, OCD, body dysmorphic disorder, personality disorders, phobias, dissociative disorders, PTSD, childhood trauma and other mental illnesses.
I relocated from New York to North Carolina in 2016 and maintain licensure in both states. In addition to office visits located near the Research Triangle Park in South East Durham I am able to provide distance sessions using the HIPAA compliant, encrypted, video platform ZOOM. The software for this is free to clients. I have had numerous successful CRM sessions with individuals in this manner and it has helped me to provide continuity in the therapy across the miles. Even when traveling I am usually able to provide sessions and keep to the regular schedule with clients. I have also been able to use Zoom to reach out to those in other countries where finding a CRM therapist is difficult.
I was born in Turkey but have spent the majority of my life in the U.S. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Syracuse University and Master of Social Work degree also from Syracuse University.
My experience in the field ranges from work on an adult inpatient psychiatric unit; preventive services for children at risk of foster placement; case-coordination for children in therapeutic foster care; outpatient psychotherapy with adults, youths, children, and couples in two group practice settings; private practice; and, day treatment therapy in a school setting.

Certification in Colin Ross’ Trauma Model Therapy
I am provisionally certified in CRM to provide consultation and personal work for therapists who are seeking certification as CRM providers themselves.
I love my work as a licensed psychologist in private practice. For more than 25 years, I have been studying, seeing clients and writing about the possibilities of more deliberate, conscious living.
Practicing CRM has increased the effectiveness of my work with clients and it forms the basis of the way I think about therapy and about how change and healing happen. My own experiences with anxiety and depression have contributed to my skill in helping clients find their way out of pain into more contented, creative and productive lives.
My book, “Waking Your Dreams”, was published in 2006. Currently I’m working on a memoir, as well as a book of essays on our amazing, intelligent bodies. I’ve also written for newspapers and have had prose and poetry published in journals and magazines,and anthologies.
I’ve taught psychology at Villanova, Immaculata and Newmann Universities, and given interviews on psychological topics on several radio and TV shows. Occasionally, I offer classes on psychological topics and writing at my office. If you come in to the office, you’ll find our work helped along by the gentle presence of a retired greyhound.
I initially trained at the University of Edinburgh in both Person Centred and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. Since then, my training has included Lisa Schwarz’s CRM models of Basic Training, as well as the Advanced trainings of Core Self, Generational, and the Intensive.
I have an extensive combined experience across the mental health sector with In Care Survivors Scotland and Open Secret; in education with Place2Be; in the voluntary sector with Lifeline Pregnancy and Counselling Care, and in my private practice in Edinburgh, as well as the Borders.
Experience and Specialities
My experience in practising CRM with clients, and in receiving it for myself, is that it works. Through the super strong multiple layers of internal resourcing that you will be learning and practising, allowing access to those deep wounded parts that need to share their story and be released from looping round your ‘system’ in the way that has influenced and limited your life so far. CRM addresses all your obstacles to healing, those parts of you that fear the work, or fear what happens to them if you begin the process of healing. I believe that CRM provides you with the opportunity for working towards your highest health and potential.
If you feel it’s time for you to address your own trauma; your fears, anxiety, depression, PTSD from traumatic event(s), stress, eating disorders, addictive coping strategies, your sense of alone-ness, a feeling of disconnect with yourself and/or others, then do please be in touch.
When emotions stir within, causing anxiety, depression, or distress in relationships, life can feel overwhelming. I view these shifts as gifts, like an indicator light your higher Self is yearning for a personal growth spurt. These feelings can be an opportunity to free yourself from the experiences that hold you back from living your best life. My ideal client is ready to explore their internal world to make the changes needed to create a positive transformation. I am a body-based trauma-informed therapist with a master’s degree in dance/movement therapy. I use the creative process and visualization as a tool for exploration.
The imagination can bypass the parts of the brain that keep us stuck in unwanted behaviors and can more easily access the parts that hold the answers. By engaging the mind and body with resources that calm the central nervous system, we have greater access to the pain-filled memories impeding us from reaching our full potential and allow insight to surface.
After 20 years of working as a therapist, I took a deep dive into my own therapeutic process and wrote a book about the experience – a memoir to be published soon. My goal is to be your guide, a doula of sorts, to help birth the person you have always wanted to become.
I am a writer and Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in private practice in Hudson Valley, New York. I began my career working in psychiatric inpatient and day treatment programs in the South Bronx NY, serving children, adolescents and adults. In 2004 I developed Damselfly Center for Autism Spectrum disorders where I created the social skills program, Amazing Kids Amazing Families, integrating the creative arts therapies. I became certified in RDI (Relationship Development Intervention), a parent coaching program for families with autism.
In 2016 I shifted my focus to working primarily with adult women and survivors of childhood abuse. I spent the next several years in her own therapy using CRM (Comprehensive Resource Model) and became trained in CRM. I integrate CRM to give clients a body-based spiritual experience in therapy.
